Kids and video games addictions

posted on 12th of october, 2008

I was wondering today if through Dreamstime I might make a bad situation better.

I was pondering the thought that many others might have the same issues as I do as a parent, and if video game addiction might be a source of sales for stock photos.

My 16yo is totally addicted to a game called World of Warcraft. It has taken over and ruined most of his life. He refuses to discuss it, has been absent on many occassions from school, he steals, and lies to feed this addiction.

For me it has been the cause of so much stress. It is almost as if this disease has infected the rest of the family and we are helpless to deal with the issue.

I believe soon this addiction thing will become a huge issue around the world, I see so many forums where folk are frustrated about members of their family addicted to this.

What about you?

my 16 yo also does the games but never liked WOW, he and my hubby are on star wars galaxies, lord of the rings, mount and blade things like that. hubby is far more addicted than our son, but none of the ones they do cost anything past a monthly fee that is small. no purchasing characters, armor, anything like that with real money. good luck.. its a hard age..
